Whether clients attend one of our public programs or arrange for a private, on-site session, Eastern Technical Associates provides the most comprehensive Visible Emissions Certification Programs available today.

The core of our training is the full-day lecture. The class not only focuses on the procedures required for valid observations, but stresses the importance of accurate, legal documentation as a crucial aspect of compliance. The lecture features a practical exercise and hands-on training, bolstering confidence and competence.

The field certification tests offer clients multiple opportunities to certify while strictly adhering to all U.S. EPA testing guidelines and requirements.

These qualities set ETA apart as the industry standard. Opacity monitoring and compliance begins with high-quality training and testing.
